Below is an excerpt from the Atanta paper. I agree. Prison is for real criminals. This woman is simply an idiot that unfortunately has the right to reproduce.
Attorney will seek leniency for mom

Parent Nakia Burgess admits she made a horrible mistake by leaving her toddler in her car while she worked last fall, but does she deserve prison time in the heat-related death?
Her attorney, Phinia Aten, is expected to lobby a Fulton County judge for mercy Tuesday during a sentence hearing in Superior Court. Prosecutors, however, will push for prison time.
Burgess, then 28, left her 3-year-old daughter, Asan'te in a locked car Oct. 2, 2002, in a Buckhead parking deck while she worked.
